Texans | DeAndre Hopkins receives praise

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 10:25:24 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins, who had three catches for 71 yards and a touchdown in the Pro Bowl, received praise from former WR Michael Irvin. "We don't know what the ceiling is," Irvin said. "You see the skillset, where he can catch footballs from anyplace in the world. There is no telling what the ceiling can be. He'll be rewriting a lot of records in the NFL." Hopkins had 111 catches for 1,521 yards and a franchise-record 11 touchdowns in 2015. Hopkins caught a touchdown from four different quarterbacks this year, which is an NFL record.

Fantasy Tip: Irvin is right, Hopkins' ceiling remains incredibly high. Just imagine if he had a strong quarterback slinging him passes on a regular basis. Even with Houston's QB position in flux, Hopkins has solidified his position as an elite fantasy receiver, and he's worth consideration in the first round of drafts.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins could burn Chiefs

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 19:14:54 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins faces the Kansas City Chiefs in the wild-card round of the playoffs Saturday, Jan. 9, and the Chiefs are allowing the second-most yards per game to opposing No. 1 receivers this season.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) had a monster regular season despite a revolving door at quarterback, and he should see more than enough targets against the Chiefs to justify his hefty price tag at FantasyScore.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins likely will play

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 12:45:54 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hand) fully participated in the team's walkthrough Friday, Jan. 8, and is listed as probable for the wild-card game against the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, Jan. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) was successful with every quarterback he played with this season and should have a big role in the team's offense strategy. Hopkins has a big price tag on FantasyScore but should be a solid option if owners are willing to spend the money.

Texans | Full practice for three Texans

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 13:24:25 -0800

Houston Texans WRs DeAndre Hopkins (hand) and Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and RB Chris Polk (knee) were full participants in practice Thursday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like the Texans will have their three top wide receivers playing together in the playoffs, assuming Nate Washington is good to go. Hopkins ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) is obviously a top wide receiver play this week against the Kansas City Chiefs, but Shorts ($3,700, 7.4%) is a decent sleeper, especially for a PPR scoring format like FantasyScore. As for Polk, he may not be utilized enough with Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes also in the mix, so there are better options at running back than him.

Texans | Three Texans limited Wednesday

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 13:31:33 -0800

Houston Texans WRs DeAndre Hopkins (hand) and Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and RB Alfred Blue (calf) were limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to believe that any of these guys would miss the playoffs this Saturday. It will be promising if any of them have a full practice, but they should still be able to play, particularly Hopkins. The Kansas City Chiefs are in the top ten in fantasy points allowed to wide receivers, too, so Hopkins remains a solid play for those in playoff leagues. Blue, on the other hand, is not an advisable option as the Chiefs boast a top-five fantasy defense against running backs.

Texans | Nuke Hopkins posts 89 yards

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 18:35:28 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins hauled in a game-high seven receptions for 89 yards in the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was targeted 12 times.

Fantasy Tip: Nuke will be a popular FantasyScore option heading into the first round of the NFL playoffs, as he catches plenty of balls and he can rack up big yardage totals and scores against a Kansas City Chiefs defense which allowed 24 passing touchdowns this season.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins makes history

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 10:15:10 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins is the first player in NFL history to have four 100-yard receiving games with four different starting quarterbacks in a season.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) is a stud WR1 candidate every week on FantasyScore, against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 17.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins plays well again

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 15:42:06 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught seven passes for 117 yards and one touchdown against the Tennessee Titans in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has played well not matter the quarterback he is playing with and has at least five receptions in all but one game this season. He will be facing the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 17 and should be a starting option in all leagues.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins eyeing long-term extension

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 06:41:42 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins' agent Hadley Engelhard met with the organization, and the receiver is expected to eventually sign a lucrative long-term contract extension, but nothing is imminent. Hopkins enters the final year of his contract in 2016, and then the Texans can pick up a fifth-year team option for the 2017 season.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) has been the focal point of the Texans offense for much of the season, especially with veteran RB Arian Foster playing just four games. Hopkins sits with 97 receptions, 1315 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns and has been a top-five wideout for the year. The Houston quarterback situation is a little concerning, but it hasn't slowed Hopkins this year, and he has caught passes from four different signal callers. He projects as a slam-dunk No. 1 WR in all fantasy formats through the rest of this season and into 2016.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins plays well

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 15:03:34 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught eight passes for 94 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has caught at least five passes in all but one game this season and has at least 80 yards receiving in nine games. Hopkins may have a new quarterback to work with against the Tennessee Titans in Week 16 but should still be a starting option.
